Published in Rower of Month

The Afloat Rowers of the Month for September are the Skibbereen men’s senior quadruple of Richard Coakley, Gearoid Murphy, Mark O’Donovan and Justin Ryan. The crew won the best race of the National Championships, beating a UCD/St Michael’s composite by .4 of a second to take the title. It has been a terrific year for O’Donovan and Ryan on the international stage as well. They made up half of the Ireland quadruple which took silver at the World Under-23 Championships in Belarus in July.

 

Rower of the Month Awards: The judging panel is made up of Liam Gorman, rowing correspondent of The Irish Times, President of Rowing Ireland Anthony Dooley and David O'Brien, Editor of Afloat magazine. Monthly awards for achievements during the year will appear on afloat.ie and the overall national award will be presented to the person or crew who, in the judges' opinion, achieved the most notable results in, or made the most significant contribution to rowing during 2010. Keep a monthly eye on progress and watch our 2010 champions list grow.

The senior women’s double scull provided a highlight of the morning session at the National Rowing Championships in the NRC in Cork today. Three boats finished in quick succession, but Sanita Puspure and Siobhan Jacob of Old Collegians were in control, holding off the challenge of Eimear and Joanne Moran of Offaly and Siobhan McCrohan and Lisa Dilleen of Tribesmen.

The senior men’s double was a much tamer affair, with Niall Kenny and Mark O’Donovan well ahead of the St Michael’s crew of Sam Lynch and Peter Hanily at the finish.

Turlough Hughes had to battle to win the men’s junior single scull. The giant King’s Hospital man hunted down and passed Shane O’Driscoll of Skibbereen in the third quarter of the race, but he had just two seconds to spare at the finish.

Skibbereen took the women’s junior single title, through Christine Fitzgerald, and the men’s intermediate double, and Alice O’Sullivan of University of Limerick won the women’s novice single scull.
